Jack Imel is an accomplished tap dancer, musician, comedian and producer, best know for his long tenure on the Lawrence Welk Show.
Jack was born on June 9th in Portland, IN. Starting at age four, he began taking tap dancing lessons, that later led to other talents like comedy, playing the triangle, the ukelele and the marimba (xylophone). As a young man, he performed in clubs, concerts, talent shows, theaters and county fairs and later did a tour in the Navy.
He joined the Lawrence Welk Show in 1957 with an abundance of energy and ideas, so much so that a couple of years later, Lawrence and executive producer Jim Hobson gave Jack duties of Associate Producer.
Jack also was in charge of the show's road tours and did comedy skits with Jo Ann Castle, the Lennon Sisters and Mary Lou Metzger. He lives today in Cathedral City, California with his wife of fifty years Norma.
Jack continues to perform both nationally at fairgrounds, theatres and cruise ships across the US and Canada.
